Schweitzer ski patrol is encouraging and offering weekly free "Transceiver Sundays" (clock tower at 10:00 a.m.) to all interested public with two permanent practice areas and one more difficult challenge that is on a less regular basis. All they ask is that the public covers up their tracks and if practicing digging techniques, please replace your divot. This is a great way to keep on your A game for those venturing out of bounds.
IPAC and Panhandle Backcountry will host an avalacnhe information booth at the Snowlander EXPO at the downtown Spokane EXPO center. Ski retailers, ski resorts, ski manufacturers, and outdoor gear reps will be at this event under one roof. Don't miss it.
